Derfner Judaica Museum


Derfner Judaica Museum welcomes visitors and researchers to its 5,000-square-foot exhibition space located on the main floor of the Jacob Reingold Pavilion at the Hebrew Home at Riverdale. The Museum is the focal point for a wide range of educational and exhibition programming for residents and visitors alike. In 2008 the Judaica Museum was named in honor of its benefactors, the late Helen and Harold Derfner.


Rotating exhibitions can be seen throughout the year. These engaging exhibitions feature contemporary artists, explore themes drawn from the permanent collection or highlight Jewish art and culture.
